that tunisia recently released a key suspect. poor libyan cooperation hampered the fbi's investigation. success here is a matter of justice. and it's also a matter of signalling to militants that there is no place for them to hide if they attack u.s. personnel. i will now turn to the distinguished ranking member, mr. engle for his opening remarks. >> thank you very much, mr. chairman for holding this important meeting. i hope we can use this as an opportunity to seriously examine the steps we need to take to prevent a repeat of the tragedy in benghazi rather than engaging in gotcha politics that make it more difficult to achieve this bipartisan goal. as the new rinking member, let me say on behalf of this committee, we would like to welcome you back and glad you are feeling better. this will likely be your final appearance before our committee and i want to take the opportunity to let you know how much we appreciate your outstanding and tireless efforts to represent our country in the international community. i have no doubt you will continue to serve our nation in some capacity as you have for

the secretary of defense, but nothing much happened. in fact, journalists beat the fbi to that diplomatic compound by several weeks and terrorists are seeing a lot of green lights across the region. what do we need to do differently? >> well, i think we should be be serious about not only attacking terrorist groups, forgetting the incorrect line that al-qaeda is on its heels. clearly it's not. forget the line that the president used throughout the campaign that the tide of war is receding. unfortunately, our enemies get a vote in whether or not that's true and may have voted that it's not true. most importantly, what does motivate the terrorists? there's an ideology that is driving us that hasn't been addressed by the obama administration. frankly it wasn't addressed that well by the administration in which i served, but looking at egypt, looking at tunisia and the islamists and the brotherhood are doing at the battle box, alongside what the terrorists are doing at the battle field and figuring out how to push back against that. >> it's interesting, i hear you talking in wider term about

. will it happens the assault weapons ban. >> no, here is the reason why. it was not renewed in 2004. the fbi and law enforcement officers saying this did not work. what we know is that since the lifting of that ban you've seen crime go down. people, many times, bill, what ends up happening, you get the gun-free zones and you get guns in the hand of criminals and you're right, there's a lot of evil in this world but the assault weapons ban is not the way to fix it. bill: okay. on the assault, let me come back to fixing that in a moment. what about a background check? could that pass? >> well, background checks already are happening and, even, you know, some people will say, there's a gun show loophole but you know what? the most of the your vendors at the gun shows are licensed vendors. they are already doing those background checks there is a very small percentage, i think it is about four or 5% of the guns that are transferred into individual to individual without background checks. bill: so much has been proposed publicly. does any of that pass now in your view? >> i don't think you're goi
